In case you're wondering about the title,
it seems all the key events in Beverly's life always happen when
she's in a car.
There are a few holes and voids in the
story I would have liked to know about. It's an entertaining
comedy/drama that's refreshingly honest in every detail.
I do think this might be Drew Barrymore's
best work to date. It's a movie about loving people despite the
ways they might hurt us.
Based on a true story, Drew Barrymore stars
in this sugar-coated piece of nostalgia about a woman's fall
from grace and the lost of her dreams.
Directed by Penny Marshall, who dwells
on cute rather than reality.
It has great acting, but men are portrayed
as unsympathetic, untrustworthy and just plain stupid.
A date movie that will have men running
for the nearest exit.

Riding in Cars with Boys is a drama about a former bad girl who grows up.
It's a story that's honest about the hardships
and sorrows that happen in families. The film shows mixed-up
and confused lives, but is not simply trading on moments of tragedy.
This movie brings to life the minds and
hearts of real characters in the real world, in which emotions
happen as a consequence of reality.
